A sixty foot sinkole which opened up in Ripon last month is being filled with concrete.

The giant hole appeared in the back gardens of properties on Magdalens Road, causing twelve homes to be evacuated.

Yorkshire Water contractors are on site putting in a temporary repair to a broken sewer system, which was damaged in the collapse.

It's hoped their repairs will be complete within a week - allowing residents in some of properties that aren't directly affected by the sinkhole to move back.
